Today started off with a wonderfully relaxed morning of getting ready for work including time to make blueberry waffles with my new Christmas waffle iron! I even packed my bag to go straight to the gym after work (goal – check!).
Things took a turn when at work today, I realized that I had to send transcripts from the fall semester in to one of the schools by tomorrow! Eeek! Cue crazy stressed out moment. Fortunately, I was able to run straight to school to get sealed copies of my transcripts and express mail them for delivery by tomorrow at 3:00PM. Phew.
I’m finally on my way to the gym an hour an a half later than intended due to my little detour and I realize that my shoulder has started hurting. I have no clue what I did to it. It’s not your typical soreness from lifting, and it’s kind of on the back of my shoulder. Despite my years and years of swimming, I have never had a shoulder injury and I’m a little nervous about it. I stretched it out really well and decided to lift anyways, it didn’t hurt during any of my moves (NROLW Stage 1 workout A), so that’s promising. It mostly hurts when I lift my arm straight over my head. Fingers crossed that’s just some intense DOMS from lifting on Sunday and it’s better soon.
I did manage to increase my weights today, so I think I’m getting some of my strength back! I hope this trend continues.
